Default Why I dislike the new album

Well I was listening to music on my ipod in my car and one of the new beastie's tracks came on, I changed the track immediately and realized why I dislike the new album. I like "check it out" and one other track that was released before the album, I forget it's name, but as for the rest of the album I can't stand it.

The boys have insane rhyming skills, but what I can't stand is them trying to be touchier and preachy. It just doesn't fit, the boys are close to 40, all gray haired, and looking like chemo victims. This tough guy attitude might work for younger, new audiences but I can't stand it.

I'd rather hear them preach about politics than hear you preach about your lame opinion.

But that's just me.

You get the gold star for lamest cliche with that bridge shit kid.

Also that chemo comment was a low blow, just cause they do yoga
and are gray haired you wanna break bad on their appearances.
Wait 'til your half dead ass is all growed up and 40. You might end up
looking kinda haggard.

You're right though, you are entitled to your opinion. Just like I am.

I dig the Beasties getting up and saying something with gravity.
fuck all this played out bullshit people are rapping about these days.
I will always listen to them because of their unique blend of pure emcee
style, political commentary, crowd hyping, throwback rhyme style and
the fact that their relationship has never strained and the result is dope
album after dope album.

My beef with To The Five Boroughs is the production, the switch from
Caldato's production technique to more computer based work with Duro
is very inorganic and a huge split from their trademark sound from '98 and
earlier. 6 years was way too long to wait and the new album was an instant
classic, but I'd like to see a return to that style I described.

In regards to the quote in the Times from Kelefa Sanneh, that dude
should be blacklisted from rap reviews, he both talks and writes about it in a
very out-of-touch, mechanical manner, and never strikes me as a hip
hop fan.

How many threads is this now, from someone bitching about the boys being 'preachy' or for having political lyrics? And again, from someone who signed up specifically to bitch about it...

Admittedly, after the very first listen I felt a little let down for some reason. However, it has since grown on me big time as I realize the importance of their message and also their Inexhaustible tallent for innovation and humour.

Musically, they have minimalized the sound to the bare essence of early 80s hip hop drum machine driven beats, amalgamating snippets of their previous albums as well. Lyrically, they have matured just enough I thought, some songs can appear to be border-line preachy however, never cross that line, seemingly just enought to bite the ignorant and brainwashed on their arses.

Two thumbs up from me as I await their next release, which I think will not take as long this time round.

Atleast I know Russell Crowe's band's a fuckin pile of shit.

The problem is that they are not innovative enough, their music and skills aren't growing with them, intergalactic was an incredibly innovative album, it's just like the beasties to give us something we don't expect.

There are so few artists that have any DESCENT personal politics, so it's very refreshing to have an artist actually write lyrics about something that MATTERS. Good for the BBoys, for sticking to their princicples, rather than writing about other things that might have helped them sell a few more albums. We need MORE artists, not LESS, that speak out against war and oppression!

Kudos to the BBoys.

If the b-boys didn't change their sound from one album to the next, they'd be the Rolling Stones or Bruce Springsteen.

You can tell that the boys are passionate about the music they make. You can hear it on every album, every ep, and every b-side. They love what they do. Thats because they are never stagnant. They make the music that they are passionate about when. If they tried to record license to ill everytime, they would have been a gimmick. Instead they are one of the most consistently innovative groups ever.

As artists, change should not only be expected, but it should be encouraged. If you don't like it, put it away and fire up a favorite.

Arrow Re: Why I dislike the new album

Feh. Personally, I loved every track when I first heard them. I think this CD is just as awesome as the other ones. People always get tight-assed when politics are brought up, so I've been hearing a lot of people bitch about not liking the CD for political reasons, which sounds so incredibly stupid to me that hearing it lowers my I.Q. a few points.

Umm...you mean, "chemo patients." These people are generally "cancer victims" I have seen many, not many who look like them.

I'll be honest...i'm a HUGE fan and they could probably produce shit, and I'd still buy it and enjoy it.

Me and a couple friends are still waiting for them to have a show within about a 5-hour radius of us.

.................................................. ........................................

This is a forum, so people are going to bitch about stuff you don't agree with.

Although then again, if you don't LIKE the Beastie Boys, then maybe you should find a different forum.

I like the album, but not as much as I like their other albums yet. It generally takes me a while to fully realize he genius behind albums. It took me fours years before I was able to appreciate Pink FLoyd, 5 for Sublime, 2 years for Hello Nasty. I think I just have to wait for a point at which I understand Music on some deeper level.
The reason that I am not yet impressed with the album, is also what impresses me about it.
I love the fact that they are taking a pure hip hop approach to this album, it is great to hear them delving head first into hip hop, it gives me a whole new feel for the Beasties. However I miss their instrumentals that not only showed me a new side of the beasties, but also a new side of music, that I hadn't really been exposed to.

Plus the instrumentals were wayyy cooler to listen to while lifted.



Namaste

Default Loves Album

Hello all, new poster here. As they say, long time listener first time caller. Just wanted to say I love the new album and the interview here on the site is funny.

The New York Times had a "critics notebook" in it Monday, October 11th. The critic compares LL Cool J and The Beastie Boys recent concerts in New York. Kelefa Sanneh(the critic): "the album also includes some of the worst Beastie Boys songs so far, and it was responsible for most of Saturday's low points" also referred to "Right Right Now Now" as "a hackneyed, flat-footed protest rap" He goes on to say how they praised the DJ instead of themselves and they shouldn't have...blah blah and Beastie Boys no longer attract women. Just wondering if anyone read the article and what you thought about it.



P.S. So hoping to catch the Michigan show on the 5th of November

I think tt5b boroughs is a very solid album. But I thinnk what all of us hardcore beasties fans are missing is the mix of styles that were on their last 3 albums. Lets face it ,the boys are not the best MC ' s or musicians but when all those styles came together on one album it made them unquie and epic. But in all due respect TT5b is probably their more focused album and it's just like the beasties to switch it up when everyone was expected an album with hip hop and instrutments to do an all rap record.

I think it is important to speak your mind as long as you are not greatly offensive and inappropriate. Regardless, if they are republican, democrats, or independents, pro-this, pro-that!!! In this world you have to stand for something! Though, sometimes I get confuse as to what it is the Beasties stand for. Sometimes.....I question do they pratice what they preach?



I am hairy, I am all natural and I am being stalked by the beasties! Help...call (fill in the blank)
